"Before, there used to be an issue where the system may not have been right or accurate. Now that’s not an issue so we can get on with business. We don’t have to second-guess what it’s doing and that is key. Having a more efficient business model supported by IT is crucial in the current economic climate. I think in the environment we’re in at the moment we would have been under a lot more pressure if we did not have the package we have today, that’s for sure"

TRS Global

We at TRS Global Ireland evaluated a number of systems in our search for a Financial Control Solution. We had previously implemented an older version of Dynamics NAV, which we moved away from, but had served the company well. After a thorough assessment of a number of options we decided to implement a Dynamics NAV solution again. During the design and implementation ProStrategy were very helpful made the transition easy and as painless as possible. ProStrategy, without difficulty implemented required customisations and resolved all issues so that when we went live on that Monday morning we were confident that the transition would be as seamless as possible. We are pleased with our decision and look forward to ProStrategy and Microsoft Dynamics NAV servicing the company into the future.
